need to do more. we should expand our domestic energy industry. american innovation has given us access to massive new deposits of oil and natural gas, making america one of the most energy- rich countries on the planet. this new energy opens all kinds of new middle-class jobs come from the fields and platforms woodrow, to the manufacturing plants that return to the united states with a lower cost of energy, and these are the types of jobs we need most, right now. middle-class work. we need to take full advantage of this. [applause] by tearing down unnecessary regulatory barriers to tapping our own energy sources. a sound monetary policy would also encourage. the way our interest rates and currency are treated is another cause of unpredictability injected right into our economy. we need to have a balanced approach to regulation. we need to weigh the benefit of any given regulation against the impact it will have on job creation. that is why we should implement something like senator paul's act, so that congress that's the final say on it. -- gets the final say on it.

could go without access to energy sources -- open up access to energy sources. the new revenues must not be used for more spending and used to reduce the deficit. how we would lock that in my rather a failure, i do not have the solution to. it is important to note there are revenues that are acceptable to conservatives. that leads me to the otherour long-term issue really is the spending issue. to the extent we have tax revenues low today, not because of the rates, because the economy is underperforming. the economy is quite weak right now. we should see much stronger lower. we want to see policies put in place that strengthen the economy and also begin to tackle this longer term spending issue we have driven primarily through entitlements. when it comes to those, there are a number of very broad, bipartisan support of the recommendations easily available to the president and speaker boehner and other leaders want to come together and get serious about making a down payment on our fiscal future. that leads me to the fourth issue -- it is possible to solve this without raising taxes.

, in the building trades. those individuals, those who work in the energy industry in all shapes, forms and sizes. those who may be in the vocational trades. maybe even nurses and nurses aids, who are lifting patients all day long. thank god for them. we see them all the time when we're visiting the sick and our relatives or we're in the hospital system of what i'm saying is, you cannot have a cookie that fits all. you cannot immediately jump to entitlement reform between now and december 31. here's a solution. the bipartisan voices have said pass the senate bill or pass the elimination of the tax cuts on the top 2%. but i believe that 100% of americans will get it. we cannot then jump to entitlement reform now. it would not be wise. it is not prudent. it does not work. when you talk about 65 to 67, that's a lifetime. because what you do as the gentleman has said york uh throw seniors into the marketplace, you save a buck and they have to spend two bucks, three bucks, four bucks and then on top of those four bucks, they'll have doored slammed in their faces, the affordable care act was premised o

is the time, energy, and attention that has been spent on these tax policies, and the neglect of the broader challenges we face. this is the fantasy of bill and donald that the entire world is focused on capping deductions and what the ramifications are and this is how they spend their lives, so they are in their element, but -- of the broader goals here. -- but we sometimes lose sight of the broader goals here. as maya was saying, the first question i wanted to answer, does this stall the problem? we have a medium-term problem which is the 10-year window, we're going to borrow $10 trillion unless we change our policies. then we have what we feel is a primary threat to the future, the long-term problem. before we get to the detail of what the percentage should be, we need to make sure that whatever we negotiate solves those problems. it is essential that revenue be part of the equation. not only for political reasons, but numerically it is difficult to do the spending cuts alone. you need to cut the budget by 30% over the long term, and that will not be supported by the people in the long ha

, alexander hamilton, observe energy is a leading character in good government. the president must lead in a divided government and must not advocate his or her -- not abdicate hor or her responsibility. president obama has the responsibility to propose a real bipartisan plan to avert the fiscal cliff that can pass both the house and the senate. withdrawing from the recommendations of the simpson- from thewing recommendations of the simpson- bowles commission, the president could propose a plan that would not only avert the so-called fiscal cliff, but also help us avert the fiscal abyss. if president obama were to offer such a plan, republicans would act favorably. going over the cliff is unnecessary. as it has been observed in "the wall street journal," the president is boxing in the republicans. he is offering them a deal they cannot accept. first, the president has repeatedly called for a balanced solution involving both revenue and less spending. what is obvious to the most casual observer is that this plan is not a balanced. the fiscal cliff involves nearly four dollars of anticipa
